this area of showers and thunderstorms just lined up, coming straight into especially delaware, and that's where we sent stormranger10, looking at some of the heaviest cells, like coming into delaware already and as we track it from middletown on into the east, it will be coming into pennsville about 7:05, carney's point at 7:15. another cell coming into chester county, coatesville at 6:45, about 7:00 in downingtown and if it holds together about 7:30 in pottstown. again we're able to concentrate just on the strongest storms, get closer to them so we can provide more detail and get really up to date live pictures. we have a first alert out for all of delaware. berks county and chester county, through friday because of this
heavy rain that's going to be coming in, wave after wave of it. so it's not a continuous rain, but you're going to get sick and tired of it by the time we get to sunday. a flash flood threat in parts of the area. it's possible we could expand that first alert if necessary, but it's really going to be bad west of us. look at the winds here, 20 miles an hour, in atlantic city, already gusting over 30. it's going to get really nasty out there, if it's not nasty enough for you already. as we go through the evening, you can see the areas of heavier rain coming up from baltimore, through dover and wilmington and into the morning rush, areas of heavier rain, again, the worst of it, if you're traveling towards washington you may want to reconsider, because they're expecting some real serious flooding there. as we go through thursday, we have more areas of rain coming in, now we see it moving in off
of the ocean. the flow is so much out of the east, all the way up through the atmosphere, that the rain starts coming in that way. there we are into friday, you can't get rid of this thing, now look at the forecast, we go through the night tonight, we have the rain in delaware and then spreading into much of the rest of the area, with temperatures in the 50s, watch what happens with the temperatures as we go through the day tomorrow. it's hardly going anywhere, and really chilly during the day. here's tropical storm matthew, 60-mile-per-hour winds, just entering the caribbean sea, and expected to become a hurricane, there's even a category 2 hurricane. there's tuba and the first commuter models showing this turn to the north and so potentially affecting and getting pretty close to the united states at some point next week. remember, that was for next wednesday. and look at the weekend forecast, sunday is the best
